a long time, when the c.i.a. for 25 years, now he's been with the obama administration as a national security advisor for four years. and while he was not the architect of the drone program itself, he has been the architect of the obama administration drone program. and i came away from there with the feeling that i had going in that there is a definite direction of not capturing these high value targets and soliciting information from them through detention and interrogation. >> but because he said that it's ideal or preferrable to capture them so you can get intelligence. >> yet when i asked him how many high value targets they had captured in the last four years on the obama administration, he dodged and weaved there. >> he said he would get back to you with a number. >> the fact is, i know what the number is. it's one. he allude to do it a little later in his testimony. we captured a guy, we put him on a ship for 60 days and sailed around in the ocean, interrogated him. you know, that's not a detention interrogation policy that can be -- >> brennan also, as mike emmanuel pointed

threat. the obama administration has focused almost entirely on al qaeda. believing people when they came in and said, look, the only people who can actually give you advice on dealing with these radical folks are islamic believers, he so you must get advice from us. form partnerships with us, let us give you advice, let us tell you how to deal with this threat. and they made great inroads in this administration in that approach. but the blindness of the larger jihadist threat, the enterprise that is being pursued by the muslim brotherhood abroad, has resulted in the practice of drone delivered assassinations of al qaeda figures with what many are questioning or arguing is due process without that. and this administration's repeated declaration that al qaeda is being defeated. they know not of what they speak. the idea that al qaeda is being defeated is helping recruit others who are radical jihadists, because they are able to point to a united states administration that is so blind and so uninformed of what really is going on that they think al qaeda's on the decline when radical jihad i
: first term scandals could be coming back to haunt the obama administration as a columnist suggests some high profile leaks could amount to an inpeachable offense. that high. we'll look at legal arguments from both sides. 24 hours after the obama administration had given authorities to kill americans with drones, we're asking why there's not more outrage in the media and capitol hill. hollywood speaks out defending the second amendment. here is a hint who it is.

and killed and on the contrary the obama administration is a allowing the targeting of american citizens to die. killing them without allowing them any legal recourse, no safeguards in place and the killings themselves are based on limits that one aclu official likely called elastic, vaguely defined and easily manipulated and d in the pro process killing many other nontargetted human beings in one case innocent children. i have to ask are the democrats going to rake obama over the coals like they did george w. bush? what about the news media? are we going to start seeing outrage from the networks? that is doubtful. there will be silence from the lap dogs in the obama mania media. in terms of the sher depth and breadth of hypocrisy and this story this is about the hardest story to beat. joining me with reaction from the american center for law and justice, jay seculw and dennis kucinich. welcome back to hannity. and dennis is now part of the family. let me get this straight. so eit enhanced interrogation is torture, it is unconstitutional and contrary to our ideas. it is not who we are bu
obama has gone lightyears beyond what the bush administration did. and by the way, if bush ever attempted this narrative, these policies, i'm telling you democrats would have been calling for are bush's impeachment. it is important to remind the american people exactly what the bush administration did in terms of terrorists. they endorsed enhanced interrogation techniques including waterboarding on exactly three, that's it, three high value terrorist detainees. one being khalid shaikh muhammad who was the mastermind of 9/11. no terrorist was ever water boarded and killed and on the contrary the obama administration is a allowing the targeting of american citizens to die. killing them without allowing them any legal recourse, no safeguards in place and the killings themselves are based on limits that one aclu official likely called elastic, vaguely defined and easily manipulated and d in the pro process killing many other nontargetted human beings in one case innocent children. i have to ask are the democrats going to rake obama over the coals like they did george w. bush? what a
now. obama administration lawyers argued that it is legal to kill a u.s. citizen if, quote, informed and -- an informed high level official decides that target was a ranking figure in an al qaeda or an associated group with -- who posed an imminent threat of violent attack against the united states. the question isn't academic. such a strike has taken place. took place in yemen, september 2011, killing an alleged al qaeda operative anwar al awlaki and samir kahn. both were american citizens who had not been indicted by the u.s. government or technically charged with any crimes. this undated white paper, which was provided to members of the senate intelligence and judiciary committees last june on the condition it be kept confidential is not classified. it's been cloaked in secrecy along with the legal memo it's derived from referred to only obliquely in this white paper memo like at this hearing in march of last year. >> i still want to see the office of legal council memorandum and order you to keep working on that. i realize it's a matter some of debate within the administration, b
this on the grounds of i don't mind the obama administration maybe doing this, you are giving the power, the latitude to any future president. a president you may not like or trust. that's the risk with executive authority. if republicans go along with it, democrats go along with it and then both expand it, future president gets that power and then i'm not comfortable with this. >> we're at war with al qaeda right now. and if you join al qaeda you lose the right to be an american. you lose a right to due process and committing treason. i don't why should we should expand american rights to people to kill americans, committing treason. this is not criticizing the united states. this is going to war against the united states. >> what about the 16-year-old killed? >> what do you mean what about the 16-year-old? >> also an american citizen, 16 years old. >> born in denver killed by one of these authorized drone attacks. >> we have said that. we have criticized that all the way through -- >> we are not talking about civilian casualties. >> this is the son of al alawaki. >> if we have people who are workin
released by the obama administration, governing school lunches and vending machines. now they are saying that we have to have diet soda and low-cal foods, all in an effort to combat obesity. i think parents know how to govern obesity in the homes. how about more physical education, i have one who needs to run around several times a day. how about parent who is think that diet soda is not the way to go? i prefer my kids to drink the soda and brush their teeth, instead of drrching diet sodasm i think this poll is like americans, parents are feeling an assault on personal freedom and how they raise their family, how they live their lives. >> another number i thought was interesting, only 26% of people in this poll say they trusted the federal government to do the right thing. only a quarter of americans. >> that's because, when you go to 2011 and see that seven months was dedicated to arguing about the debt ceiling. the debt ceiling, which does not one thing to add to the budget deficit. not one nickel of spenning, it's agreeing to pay the bill. we waited seven months and threaten ord credi
in a national park. >> and are you lobbying the obama administration for this? >> of course. >> and what is the holdup? what's taking them -- what is their hesitation? >> well as you can see, you've got a lot of people that resist any kind of change, and i give you the example, it took us two years just to stop the importation because of resistance. >> let me ask you one quick question about some senate business, are you fully confident that chuck hagel can do the job of secretary of defense? do you have any hesitation based on that confirmation hearing? >> i have the confidence in chuck. i was surprised that he was not more direct in his answers. he could have been more straightforward. i think he would have come off better but chuck is an enormously competent patriot, and he will do well as secretary. >> senator bill nelson, democrat from the state of florida, i appreciate the update on this python issue and we'll be waiting to hear what the obama administration does in response to the idea of expanding it to the national park itself. thank you, sir. >> thanks, chuck. >>> turning to th
with energy. much of this comes from the obama administration with its green energy policies. don't you think it will just find another way to help these companies out? >> there are lots of ways that a determined federal government and the president to is intent on providing very expensive energy that people can't afford and don't want to my good start would be getting rid of these tax credits. we have all of the things, loan guarantees that became solyndra, all of the other ways that the federal government can put it thumb in favor a particular friend of theirs or an energy source that they happen to value. but this would be a good first part. it's good tax policy. gerri: i'm all in favor of renewable energy. i'm in favor of wind, whenever you want to build, mr. private businessmen. i just want to pay for it. is that how you feel? >> i completely agree. i am very hopeful that one of these great energy sources will find an affordable solution for america. but it is just like anything else. the greek independence and the money from taxpayers, eventually they have to get off and get the depende
, the obama administration has been getting called out for picking winners and losers in the energy sector, mostly losers. a nebill would eliminate all of the energy, all of the energy tax credits. would that make it even playing field for people in that this is? running me now, republican congressman of kansas superposed the bill. congressman, welcome to the show. are you trying to accomplish with this? >> several things, first of all. thank you for having me on the show and talk about this. this is about affordable energy for the folks in kansas and california. affordable energy that they can depend on and rely on. our tax cut has become one that favors folks with a political ties and not those customers. in so many energy companies to get back to doing what they're supposed to do, creating value through finding customers, not political patrons. my legislation does just that, getting rid of every single energy tax credit in the entire code. i am all for it. we should close these loopholes for wind and the algae and tax credits totalling guesstimed of the mall and level the playing field.
>>> let me finish tonight with this. the obama administration has found a way to offer birth control to women who want it without infringing on religious belief. it's a victory for the president and roman catholics. how do we ensure that women get birth control? how do we insure that religious institutions aren't forced to pay for it? access to stand-alone-coverage. changes where they will put their policies on sale. the key here is it gets around a pair of goals that were in conflict, are not anymore. one goal is to reduce dramatically the number of unwanted pregnancies. regular use of birth control is one way that works. in this case, the catholic church is protected from having to pay for birth control insurance. my own idea is the solution the obama reached is win-win. getting birth control to women for free will help to make it free. to keep the catholic church out of that transaction makes it no less beneficial to the goal of averting unwanted pregnancies. and with them in many cases, the decision to have an abortion. this is what good, smart, progressive morally uprigh
the obama administration, an international field some change is coming to haiti. . jobs have been created, schools have been built, yet, gender-based violence remains severe. today i'm introducing a resolution calling attention to the plight of haitian women and children and calling for action on their behalf. with the strategy to prevent gender-based violence, the obama administration is on the right track. congress and the administration must ensure robust funding for these initiatives, including the u.s. agency of international development, gender equality and female empowerment policy to meet the continuing need. for me, this issue is personal. i've seen the tent cities firsthand. i have spoken with the women. i have counseled the victims and witnessed the scars of indignation and pain. i feel the anguish in my bones. but i also feel the hope. let's work together to ensure that no woman in haiti, no woman in this hemisphere or in this world has to bear the indignity of sexual violence. thank you, mr. speaker. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoma
think it is a great idea and that's what the obama administration is tapping into that while the nra and nra members have always been a very vocal, you could say minority they're hoping to tap into the silent majority of people who want more common sense when it comes to gun control, gun laws. >> before i let you get out of here. i do want to ask you about jesse jackson, jr., over the misuse of campaign funds. what's next for jesse jackson, jr.? >> well, the next step would be to have the announcement from the justice department with some more specifics. my colleagues at "the sun-times" have reported that the deal may not include a deal over what kind of prison time to serve and he thought he might have done better with the judge. the next step was to find out the details and exactly what he pled to. we also need to know if his wife now former alderman sandy jackson will get caught up with some kind of charges pressed against her because she served as his campaign manager and drew a salary from his campaign fund and is suspending from that fund that is at issue here. >> lynn sweet, c
. there is aments vs. a needs test. what obama administration wants to do is not what our country needs to be done. drilling or fracking we need to exploit our own resources at this time for our own benefit. we shouldn't be buying resources from countries that don't like us very much. and why is it okay to drill off the coast of brazil but not the coast line of our own coast line, florida, mississippi, we need to exemployed our own resources. we have got to get trying to define the marketplace by regulation. counts the real authority which should be taken and that is by rule of law. by legislation by agency or by the president's stroke of a pen by executive order. >> brand new secretary of state john kerry says that climate change is going to be one of his main focuses. what happens with the keystone pipeline. is he talking more broadly on the international stage with all of the things that we're facing at home and abroad. do you think that climate change should be the top priority for the secretary of state? >> i think climate change should be a top priority for all of us. 97% of scientists and r
and expanded under president obama. brennan's defense of the secrecy surrounding the administration's most questionable program, targeted assassinations using drone aircraft, was as opaque as the program itself. >> what we need to do is optimize transparency on these issues, but at the same time optimize secrecy and the protection of our national security. i don't think that it's one or the other. it's trying to optimize both of them. >> some senators, including ron widen and angus king, pushed brennan to explain the legal at and justification for assassinating american citizens abroad. >> every american has the right to know when their government believes it's allowed to kill them. >> i understand you can't have co-commanders in chief, but having the executive being the prosecutor, the judge, the jury, and the executioner all in one is very contrary to traditions and the laws of this country. >> brennan argued essentially that the ends justify the means. >> the decision that is are made are to take actions so that we prevent a future action so we protect american lives. that is an inheren
the speakers at the funeral today. he is representing the obama administration. the mayor died of congestive heart failure on friday morning. he was 88 years old. >>> coming up, just 25 days until the next potential fiscal crisis. the sequester could have devastating impact on our current economy, particularly the job market. we get ezra klein in. >>> plus, the highlights and no-lights of the super bowl. a record-breaking night in so many ways, on the field and on the clock, but also an electrifying night when the power was working, of course. then the power goes out. it was crazy. what was your most memorable moment of the super bowl? [ male announcer ] it's simple physics... a body at rest tends to stay at rest... while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can actually ease arthritis symptoms. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical stud

? joining us now is oregon democratic senator ron wyden, who has repeatedly asked the obama administration bower drone policy. senator wyden, it's good to see you. thank you for being with us. >> thank you for having me again. >> did you not in fact get what you had asked the president to give you and that you thought you would be getting this morning based on your conversation with the president last night? >> rachel, it's not clear. the fact is, and i went in first thing this morning, i was able to read some information that was helpful. i'm just not convinced yet that it is the full legal analysis that we need to do to do vigorous oversight. what today was really about is of course it was a nomination hearing for john brennan. but it ultimately was a question of upholding our system of checks and balances in government. and i think that system is out of whack these days and we've got to do some more for transparency and accountability in getting those checks and balances back. >> in terms of this specific program that you've been asking about the legal advice for, specifically targeting
media just blew up, and of course blaming the obama administration, pointing to this department of energy press release detailing the city of new orleans embracing of energy efficiency. "the daily caller" writing "what is more energy-efficient than darkness? green is the new blackout." this tweet from herman cain, "the department of energy wanted you to know that last night's super bowl was the greatest -- or the greenest ever. then the lights went out." from a "wall street journal" columnist, "super bowl xlvii is brought to you by solyndra." and from laura ingraham, "how long before we hear from the white house about the need for another multibillion stimulus to rebuild the power grid?" and donald trump, "the country is being run just like the stadium." meanwhile, former bush administration fema director michael brown -- you know brownie, who spent days ignoring what was going on in the superdome during hurricane katrina -- used the blackout to comment not on infrastructure, but on the residents of new orleans. "someone just told me there was fighting going on in new orleans su
for spinning weird conservative conspiracy theories by the obama administration's secret government plan to track law abiding citizens and und undermine the citizens, the times are changing, house and senate working on the bills to include background checks and limiting ammunition magazines. and no universal registry of all citizens. tomorrow, a bipartisan group in the house will also introduce a bill that will make the gun trafficking a federal crime and impose stricter penalties on "straw purchasers" or people who buy firearms for those who can't. they would only get in trouble of law enforcement was able to prove they bought a gun for a nonpurchaser, you had to have known they were a criminal. the new law, which mirrors one already introduced in the senate would make it illegal for straw purchasers to buy and transfer fa firearms to anyone banned from having one at all. but the question is where does congress stand on passing bans? >> you should restore the military-style ban, and restore the ten-round magazines. that deserves a vote in congress, because weapons of war have no place i
that that is the threat, but nothing from the -- but nothing from the administration indicates that. >> obama care was not a tax until they needed to be a tax. >> that was the supreme court. host: weighing in on the conversation, the financial crisis, did it delay your retirement? on twitter you can participate as well. host: let's hear from sandra in virginia. hello. caller: i am the wife of a retired pastor. he is not retired, we cannot retire. because when the crash happened, we received notice from our retirement fund that in order for them to serve everyone, they were going to cut everyone, so we got a cut from 2100 per month to 1600 per month. my husband has to continue working, even though he is well past the age for retirement. they are talking about moving it up. while pasturing is not a hard job, physically, it is still a matter of going to work everyday and it is definitely an emotionally draining jobs. even though he is called a part- time minister, there is no such thing as a part-time anything in pastoral ministry. when people call on you, you come, and that is just the way that it i
the capacity to deliver a blow to them. gregg: president obama has repeatedly said and his administration has said the military option is on the table. is that rhetoric in your judgment? is it sincere? does it need you to believe that in the end israel will be forced to act unilaterally? >> what's most important is what do the iranians believe? they don't believe that rhetoric. they have watched us wire brush the israelis in public for inching closer to a military option. the iranians interpret that that we don't have the stomach ourselves for the military option. they don't take it seriously. netanyahu said to us months ago that this summer is when he believes the iranians will cross the red line. and he will be forced to conduct some unilateral military action. it appears that will become a reality. gregg: iran's foreign minister claims his country is set to do a deal with the west to diffuse the situation. is that just a ploy, they are borrowing a page out of the iranian nuclear play book? it's a shell game and they are playing us? >> if you asked any american on the street. put a micropho
